All Jimmy wants is to live a simple life. He's a simple guy who enjoys simple pleasures. Jimmy is a sweet soul who has been through a lot. He can be super shy at first but once he gets to know you he is a very active and playful pup.

Jimmy is still learning exactly how to be a dog, and he is not too keen on pets and eye contact, but hey, who does like being touched or stared at by a stranger? Jimmy is looking for someone who is going to take the time to earn his trust, so he knows that they will be a worthwhile lifelong companion. But don't worry, Jimmy is not above being bribed with some yummy snacks. Throw some carrots his way and he just might crumble!

Jimmy would love to have a nice safe place that is solely his space. When he is in one of his braver moods, he likes to come out to play and explore. However, he needs a safe zone where he can retreat to when he gets startled. He will soon "recharge and emerge once again. As Jimmy starts to get more comfortable, he wants to spend more time with you, but he doesn't want you to know it. He'll follow you around the house, but he likes to play hide and seek - if you turn and look at him he'll duck behind the table or the kitchen island. He will also sniff your elbows and toes when you're sitting down but jump out of the way if you try to sneak in a pet.

Jimmy is constantly discovering new things about this world and is becoming more confident every day. He is sure to make your heart melt as you watch him grow into the best version of himself. Come meet this precious boy!
Come meet your new best friend
